A Proper Goodbye to Pentax

So I made this post thinking it would help make it easy to put up all my Pentax gears for sale. I was dead wrong. Are all you guys working for Pentax :lol:? Even my girlfriend is telling me I should try to keep the K-1 now.



Thanks mate.



The ultimate reason why it's been so hard to get rid of Pentax has been cause it always feels intuitive in my hand.
It took me a few months to get the hang of holding the A7RIII. And overcoming the menu was the most daunting task.
Things got easier after I program settings in the camera for the three shooting scenarios I use the most and I also bookmarked my frequently used menu items.
Now I have to figure out things for video settings.



This was absolutely a commercially influenced decision. Even with the earlier Pentax, I never felt like I was at a disadvantage when it comes to taking a good photo. I shoot more like a film guy when it comes to my own work so the slow focus didn't bother me... It was only when I started losing jobs or get in awkward situations on set specifically due to my camera (tethering, compatibility issue, etc) that I started to look elsewhere.



Thanks mate. Funnily I did the same thing on my last trip a couple months ago.I left my Sony kit behind for the Pentax K-1.



Thanks. That alligator shot is a good summary of my first couple of years learning photography. I used to spend hours chasing them to get a decent photo.



You are absolutely right. Every Pentax I've held in my hand always felt like an extension to myself, even the Pentax 6x7 eventho it's a bazooka.... Still getting used to the ergonomics of the Sony. The G Master lenses are giants comparing to the FA lenses I'm so used to. I'm sure with enough usage, the system will feel like a part of me. But at least for now, it doesn't get in the way of me taking good photos.



My girlfriend gave me this same reasoning. I'm buying a backup Sony body, a few lenses, and a Mamiya RZ67 soon. So I wanted to make some space for them. I hate being bugged down with too many gears specially if I won't be using them. But now why do I feel like I need to sit on this decision and think for a bit?

A Proper Goodbye to Pentax

About 2 years ago, I posted a thread on here that I was leaving Pentax. But from that time on, I was still using my Pentax gears for all my personal work and rent Canon /Sony for some client works.
A few months ago, I decided to buy into Sony's system with the A7r III. I haven't been using my Pentax kit since then and I'm about to post it on the marketplace.
So this is the real goodbye to the brand and community that helped me become a photographer.

My first camera was the Pentax K100D. I bought into Pentax in 2009 after I stumbled on Ben Kanarek's work which led me to this forum. Below is the only photo I have left from using that camera.

K100D, Takumar 135mm


I then made the jump to the Pentax K-7. That was the first time I felt like I could actually do photography for a living. I used to live in Central Florida and drive down to Miami to shoot models.

K-7, FA77mm (all three shots)


I switched to the K-5 once I felt like the K-7 was limiting my work. That probably was a lie back then but buying it wasn't a bad decision.

K-5, DA 40mm (left), FA 77mm (right)


I bought the K3 right after I moved to NYC in 2014. That was when I started to take photography seriously. A majority of my work with this camera was for fashion magazines and my personal projects which ended up in many fine art publications.

K-3, FA 77mm (left) | DA 40mm (mid) | DA 40mm (right)


I almost gave up on Pentax after the K3 to move to a full-frame system. Then the K-1 came out. I bought one in late 2016 and thought it was the perfect camera until I started doing jobs that were requiring tethering. This camera has been responsible for my best work so far. Same with the FA 77mm. I would say 70% of the photos in my current portfolio were shot with that lens/camera combo.

K-1, D FA 24-70mm (left) | FA 77mm (right)


I'm now shooting with Sony exclusively. The A7RIII has been the most impressive camera I've ever used. But it still doesn't have that Pentax feeling in my hand. If someone getting in photography ask me for camera recommendation, I'll most likely still recommend Pentax (with a few caveat)... I hope Ricoh keep investing in the brand... Big thanks to this community for existing and for being nice when I used to post on here years quite a bit... And keep shooting!

Ah! My comment wasn't meant to be toward anyone of the guys featured on there. I'm sure they are great at what they do and I'm not looking to replace anyone of them.

I think I've made enough income with photography and have more than enough publication/exhibition/books under my belt to shed that amateur title a long time ago though ;)

As I was going through some BTS for the 2018 Pirelli calendar, I noticed Tim Walker shooting with the Pentax 645z. Tim is one of the most amazing fashion photographers out there with a portfolio is out of this world. The majority of his work is done in film with barely any post processing. He just recently got into shooting with digital. The Pirelli calendar is also one of the biggest fashion publication out there. So I just thought it was cool to see a 645z in the mix of it all.

It's been a while but I thought I would update this thread. I'm still using Pentax. After renting a 5D MkIV a few times, I keep finding myself going back to the K1. The 5DIV is a fantastic camera with better focus and better tethering support but it just doesn't feel right in my hand for some reason.

I went on a whim and bought the Image Transmitter 2 software to see if it could be a passable solution. Using it on its own wasn't... But when I pair it with Lightroom or C1, it does the job. Transfer speed is an issue as expected, specially since I always shoot raw.To mitigate that, I set up the camera to shoot both Jpeg and Raw. In IT2, I selected for it to transfer the jpeg but save the Raw files in the card. This method works for now. If a gig demands more, I'll stick with renting another system...

The funny thing is I hate tethering when it comes to shooting my own work. But not having it when needed definitely cost a lot... Every shoot from this job I missed out on was enough to pay my rent and other monthly bills. The showroom has their own in-house retoucher/digitech. So all I had to do is show up with two assistants to set up sets, shoot, and turn over the low res files at the end of the day. The next day, they would send me their selection so I could give their retoucher the high res.

Thanks, mate. I'm in the younger folks bracket. So most people I interact with in regard to photography didn't know that Pentax make DSLR until they saw me with one. I ended up convincing quite a few of them to give Pentax a shot... I must admit the novelty of being one of the few guys in my field creating with Pentax did feel nice at times.
